    National Emergency

    https://lawandcrime.com/high-profile/that-time-barack-obama-declared-a-national-emergency-to-stop-a-mexican-drug-cartel/ As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to America. 604 Thanks, Obama: Here’s the Obama Executive Order Trump Is Using to Build the Wall by Matt Naham | 11:37 am, February 15th, 2019 President Donald Trump held a wide-ranging Friday press conference in which he reiterated that if “you don’t have a border, you don’t have a country,” defending his invocation of the National Emergencies Act to help fund the building of The Wall. The president said he aims to stop illegal immigration, the influx of drugs and criminal into America. He cited past emergency declarations, including one by President Barack Obama, that Trump said targeted cartels. As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans. “Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.” Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday. “We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said. In 2011, Obama said that the organizations The Brothers’ Circle (“a criminal group composed of leaders and senior members of several Eurasian criminal groups that are largely based in countries of the former Soviet Union, but also operate in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America”), the Italian crime syndicate known as Camorra, the more recognizable Yakuza, and the aforementioned Los Zetas. “Such organizations are becoming increasingly sophisticated and dangerous to the United States; they are increasingly entrenched in the operations of foreign governments and the international financial system, thereby weakening democratic institutions, degrading the rule of law, and undermining economic markets. These organizations facilitate and aggravate violent civil conflicts and increasingly facilitate the activities of other dangerous persons,” Obama said. “I therefore determine that significant transnational criminal organizations constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.” Womp to the mfn womp. Trump may use an existing National Emergency declared by Obama to build the wall. Your move retards.

    About Time

    In case you haven't seen it yet, this movie is fantastic. On the surface it is a romantic comedy but it is really a drama about life and losing a parent.

  7. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-reportedly-paid-50k-to-install-golf-simulator-at-white-house The president, who owns more than a dozen golfcourses, is an avid golfer. Simulators allow golfers to play virtual rounds at famous courses from around the world. Trump’s new simulator was installed sometime over the last few weeks in a room in the White House residence, the Post reported, citing an administration official. The Washington Post suggested the simulator could be made by TrackMan, a Danish company that says it made simulators for Trump’s courses in Florida, Virginia and Scotland. According to the company’s website, players can virtually play famous courses, like Innisbrook, Muirfield Village, Albany, PGA National, and the St. Andrews Links courses. This has to be grounds for impeachment, right?

    Guess the Geek, FL edition

    DogShow
  9. I am not a hunter and I am not a brainless NPC PETA bot so I have no dog in the fight. If one educates themselves on hunting, poaching, nature, and 3rd world countries they quickly learn that big game hunting is good for the animals and local villages. - the fees paid by hunters are the sole funding for wildlife conservation in most places - without guided hunts in places like Africa and Asia the big game/trophy species would be poached out of existence in a matter of years - a proper shot by a hunter is the most humane death a wild animal will experience. Die within minutes from a shot or have a lion or bear rip you limb by limb while still alive over the course of potentially hours - the meat from big game feeds an entire village for a day or three, villages where their average diet consists of 3 grains of rice and 2 beans Are there some hunters who are only in it for the rack and social media pics? Sure, them, they are no better than the slut posting gym pics or the gangsta posting bling pics. Many hunters though are just participating in the process of life and helping the environment and poor people along the way.

    Men are pigs and pigs are pigs. Instagram model gets bit.

    Thanks. I guess it doesn't work on my browser/device/whatever. I get the little popup saying it was embedded but then it doesn't show up in the post and I have to go back and insert as a link. I thought maybe I was missing something but it appears to just be a technical error with my browser (Brave) or device (Android).

    He has hired the same PR firm that represented Harvey Weinstein after he founded the #metoo movement. https://twitter.com/Chadwick_Moore/status/1095526131053281282

    My Post Count Went Way Down

    If I had to guess, the old post count included deleted posts/threads. With the new software the Invision hamsters recounted all of the posts that we're still here. Mine dropped about 15%.

    How do you embed Instagram and Twitter like that?
